    Just spotted this. Scary stuff and something we should fight tooth and nail against.

    “Is it a possibility?”

    Well yes, of course it is.

    It’s also possible that I could shag Miss World, fecking unlikely, but it’s theoretically possible.

    I appreciate the civil liberties argument but shouldn’t I have the liberty to get on a train, go to the pub or watch a football match without worrying if the bloke next to me could inadvertently kill me?

    That said, I just don’t see people downloading the app, mass civil disobedience would knock this on the head

    I wonder if Anna has ever used Apple Pay to purchase anything or maybe used it on a bus or the tube because that’s all your personal and bank details linked to a SIM card there :sherlock: as with with most of the population they will say it’s outrageous but if it becomes outrageously convenient then they will lazily use it

    You'll let Google know your location but not the government?

    Interesting.

    You could just turn your phone off if you wanted to go burning English holiday maker cottages.

    If these last few months have shown me anything it is to enjoy the little things in life. and that this country is full of “Karen’s”.

    Strict controls on movement and liberties is because it is the other side of the “please government look after me” coin. If people want a nanny state then you get all that comes with it. You can’t say that you are entitled to “free” healthcare and not have the rest of your life “cared for” too.

    I get what you’re saying re: ‘Karens’ but surely you don’t believe that the cost of a National health service, which we pay for, is an erosion of our civil liberties?

    As it happens I feel strongly about retaining our freedoms, but in a situation such as this then I’m pretty comfortable with technology being used in this way, although there is always the worry that it could be a ‘thin end of the wedge’.

    You don’t pay for the NHS. You are taxed. You pay for private health care.
    And unless you didn’t stay at home during the lockdown then no you didn’t have some level of your civil liberties eroded...but I suspect you did like the rest of us?

    What is clear is that you can’t have a nanny state and expect to do and go where ever you want without control or restrictions.

    Yeah, we pay our taxes. The lockdown is clearly just temporary and necessary restrictions though.

    Erm, I don't use the location thing on my blower for anything due to the privacy issue, but a double whammy of the unbelievable battery drain.

    I even stopped using the Lottery app when it started asking for location info, and also Super 6, which has thankfully stopped requesting this.

    Hope this helps

    What about Google maps man? Telling you where you are, telling you where traffic jams are, rerouting you, telling you where the good restaurants are when you get there. Goes head to head with Sky+ as one of humanities greatest ever achievements.

    Fuck Google maps. Fuck Google in fact. Duck Duck Go here.

    Still got a garage bought atlas in the car, and I find that road signs are surprisingly helpful in finding destinations.
